All the latest LIVE from the Hawthorns

West Brom manager Steve Bruce has made just change for Monday evening’s Championship clash with Swansea City.

Callum Robinson gets a start for the Baggies with Karlan Grant the unfortunate man being taken out of the squad.

Bruce is still searching for his first win since taking the reins at the Hawthorns and is hoping to make it fifth time the charm against the Welsh side.

The weekend’s results saw Albion drop all the way into the bottom half of the Championship table so it has become imperative for them to get a result against the Swans in order to keep pressure on that top six.

So, the team in full that are tasked with doing just that is as follows:

Sam Johnstone keeps his place in goal as expected and he sees what looks like a back four yet again in front of him.

Dara O’Shea will be tasked with playing right-back again with Conor Townsend on the opposite flank and Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi the two central defenders.

Alex Mowatt and Jayson Molumby have formed a decent partnership in the middle and keep their place with Robinson and Grady Diangana on the wings.

Adam Reach will play just behind Andy Carroll who once again has the pressure on his shoulders to deliver up top as the lone striker.

Teams in full
